CornHolio: That's really something for the forums.

The publisher seems to have pulled the new release and is serving the 11.0.53254 release from December for both standard and portable downloads even though the main download page still shows 11.0.55321 as the current version.

'PhonerLite' is bigger in size than 'Phoner' now :D

Haha - I'm still using this program! It's still the best you can get for free.

Portability may be lost after update- re-enable it from "Settings" - "Advanced" - "Make Tox portable".

I can't get this software to work at all. Have reverted to PhonerLite, which has a clumsy interface but works OK. I like the neat gui for MicroSIP, but can't make outgoing calls at all, getting a 'connection timeout' message; and after answering an incoming call, can neither hear or be heard by caller.
Bizarre; use the same settings as for PhonerLite, and when MicroSIP is running, it registers with my VOIP provider (Sipgate) OK, but ... zilch!

Always wanted to get this client to work as a P2P-client with encrypted communication, but so far I havent had any success.
